After the Rain Has Fallen

Album: Brand New Day (1999)
Charted: 31
  • The palace guards are all sleeping
    Their fires burn into the night
    There's a threat of rain on the dark horizon
    And all that's left is a quarter moon of light
    He climbs up through the darkness
    No weapon but his surprise
    The greatest thief in the high Sahara
    Enters the room where a sleeping princess lies
    All your money, your pretty necklace
    This is my work on such a night
    There's a storm coming over the mountain
    I'll be gone long before the morning
    After the rain has fallen
    After the tears have washed your eyes
    You find that I've taken nothing, that
    Love can't replace in the blink of an eye
    He was as gentle as the night wind
    As no lover had been before
    And the rings she wore for her bride groom
    Slipped from her fingers and fell to the floor
    Take me with you, take me with you
    Before my lonely life is set
    I've been promised to another
    To a man I've never even met
    After the rain has fallen
    After the tears have washed your eyes
    You'll find that I've taken nothing, that
    Love can't replace in the blink of an eye
    After the thunder's spoken, and
    After the lightning bolt's been hurled
    After the dream is broken, there'll
    Still be love in the world
    She said take me to another life
    Take me for a pirate's wife
    Take me where the wind blows
    Take me where the red wine flows
    Take me to the danger
    Take me to the life of crime
    Take me to the stars
    Take me to the moon while we still have time
    After the rain has fallen
    After the tears have washed your eyes
    You'll find that I've taken nothing, that
    Love can't replace in the blink of an eye
    After the thunder's spoken, and
    After the lightning bolt's been hurled
    After the dream is broken, there'll
    Still be love in the world
